YGRR 2014 Calendar

  YGRR is a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization which provides veterinary care and permanent new homes for Golden Retrievers from the six New England states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont). We are a full-service rescue and we assist Goldens of all ages and medical conditions. Our youngest Rescue Golden was part of an abandoned litter born at Riverview (our rescue and adoption facility) and our oldest Rescue Golden was fourteen at the time of admission to our program. We rescued our first Golden in April, 1985 and placed our 4000th Golden during the year 2004.

ALL the Goldens who appear on this Web site are YGRR Goldens. YGRR relies on donations, fund-raising activities and memberships for its income. We do not receive any state or federal funds. Donations to YGRR are tax deductible.

Our organization is operated principally by dedicated volunteer members in collaboration with a committed small professional staff. A variety of volunteer opportunities are offered to YGRR members. This entire Web site was designed and is maintained by YGRR volunteers.

Our members reside all over the United States and abroad, sharing an affection for dogs in general and Goldens in particular.

This Web site provides detailed information about YGRR. We also provide health, safety, behavior and training information for the owners of all dogs and listings of rescue organizations for other breeds.

Thanks for your visit. Please bookmark our site and come again soon!
